I couldn't find the answer through Google or this forum, only encountered the question a couple times with no actual answer!
So maybe you guys can help.

In the Mage's Guild Arcaneum there are several book cases that require a key to open. I simply can't find it. I've tried checking shelves, pickpocketing Urag, and general thrashing around in distress about not being able to access what I hypothesize to be some interesting reading (especially those darn books I gave back to him during a quest which I mistakenly didn't read first...)

Any ideas? I must have these books! (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

ES Games: Oblivion and Skyrim.
Platform: PC and 360. Definitely not PS3.
If it's not on Urag it probably doesn't exist. Probably a sly move on Bethesda's part, to give the idea that the Arcaneum is a vast library, but without having to have actual open bookshelves with repeating copies of the same books on them, as you probably saw was the case with most bookshelves in Oblivion.

And that I would be fine with, if only Urag didn't lock away those books that I gave him on the quest to find out more about the Eye of Magnus! (Or just get rid of them entirely, maybe they're gone once you hand them over.)
Has anyone read them? I didn't even open them. Maybe they're just not legible.

I think but I'm not certain than two of the books can actually be found on the Radiant Quests Urag gives you to go and find books within ruins. The third - the most important one which you have to talk to Tolfnir about, is unique (probably) and as far as I know remains in your inventory after the quest. At least mine did.
