Cloistered Archivist (3.5e Alternate Class Feature)
From D&D Wiki
You concentrate even more on your studies than other archivists.
Replaces: If you select this class feature, you lose all your Armor Proficiencies.
Benefit: You gain Lore. Lore (Ex): Thanks to long hours of study, a cloistered archivist has a wide range of stray knowledge. This ability is identical to the bard’s bardic knowledge class feature, using the cloistered archivist’s class level in place of the bard level.
