TIL by the Numbers

Did you know that the Library currently houses over 4,000 ingame books? 4,184 to be exact! Since we collapse multi-volume texts into a single book (making something like the Lessons of Vivec one book instead of 36), the actual number of individual texts is quite a bit higher still. 

Taking up nearly half our virtual shelves, notes and correspondences are by far the biggest category. Here’s how the rest of it breaks down:

Over the last four years, our most read books have been:

Our most popular non-book articles, in that same time period:

Despite being entirely in English, visitors to the Imperial Library come from pretty much every country on Earth (including 3 people from Anguilla, 12 from Seychelles, and 175 from Brunei). In the past four years, people from these 10 countries have visited TIL the most:

  1. United States
  2. United Kingdom
  3. Canada
  4. Australia
  5. Germany
  6. Russia
  7. Brazil
  8. France
  9. Sweden
  10. The Netherlands

In the US, our most popular states are California, Texas, and New York -- which also happen to be the most populous states, so that makes sense. Least popular were Delaware, South Dakota, and Wyoming. Maryland, home of Bethesda Softworks and Zenimax Online, sits at number 21.
