The book can be found in the boss level chest of every dungeon in the game, including those added in Dawnguard and Dragonborn, meaning your target will be randomly selected from over 140 possible dungeons. p>
PC 360 PS3 Sometimes the location of Shalidor’s writings is not shown on the map, making it extremely difficult to find. If any of the books are on Solstheim, you must travel there to see them on the map.
Shalidor’s Insights is a side quest started by speaking to Urag gro-Shub at the College of Winterhold.
After finding the books in Fellglow Keep, Urag rewards the Dragonborn with six skill books: Racial Tree, Daughter of Niben, Catalog of Weapon Enchantments, Answer to Beros Speech, The Black Arts in Court , and 2920 Volume 09 – Hearth Fire.
Scattered throughout Tamriel are 297 books that belong in Shalidor’s library.
You will find Orthorn locked in a cage in another room. Pull the levers to open these cages and let him out. The books were taken from him and are located deeper in the keep. You have the choice of either sending him on his way or asking him to come with you.

The Still appears in one of three random locations in the Hall of Power: On the top floor: in the north room, on a barrel to the right of the central dining bench. Upstairs: under the left showcase in the Magic Room.
If Dawnguard is installed, the scroll is required again for the quest Invisible Visions. If you’ve already sold it to Urag, you’ll need to buy it back for 4,000 gold (or, if you’ve completed the College of Winterhold questline, for the original 2,000 gold).
Urag can make you a blood relative of the Orcs (after completing the quest Get Me the Book! ) if you haven’t already earned it in some other way. After completing the quest Alduin’s Bane, it is possible to sell the Elder Scroll to Urag for 2000 gold.
Due to Urag’s odd knowledge affiliation for an Orc, it’s likely that he was born in Orsinuim (probably the 3rd city) as he can still call the player blood relatives so he still has a connection to the clans , unlike any Orc who was born in a tribe city, so he’s most likely 992 years old, more or less.
Ask Septimus about the Elder Scroll and he will say it is hidden in the depths of Blackreach, a large underground Dwemer city that lies beneath the ruins of Alftand and many other Dwemer ruins.
Behind the swinging door on the right (west) side is a small area with two pillars with pull chains on the other side and a spike trap on the side. The two pull chains must be activated to open the final gate to the final room. Behind this gate, another pull chain on the right side closes the gate that has just been opened.
