Tolfdir the Absent-Minded is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This quest can be done multiple times after the quest "Hitting the Books". If Tolfdir appears to be looking for something, ask what it is he is missing.
Upon returning from the quest to recover the books from Fellglow Keep ("Hitting the Books"), Tolfdir may ask the Dragonborn to recover his misplaced alembic. The alembic will appear in one of three randomly-selected locations in the Hall of Countenance:
- On the top floor: in the northern room, atop a barrel to the right of the central table.
- On the top floor: underneath the left display case in the enchanting room.
- On the bottom floor: on a crate in the eastern room.
