The university library has developed into a center of learning and collaboration that can truly become the heart of campus within the university community (Hisle, 2005). Third places are “public places on neutral ground where people can gather and interact. The character of a third place is determined most of all by its regular clientele and is marked by a playful mood, which contrasts with people’s more serious involvement in other spheres” (Oldenburg, 1989). The library is neither home nor work, but a “third place” for students to study and socialize (Codispoti and Frey, 2010).
