Abstract [en]

Introduction. This paper explores the notion and use of third space as conceptualised by Kuhlthau, Maniotes and Caspari on guided inquiry in information literacy and in human computer interaction literature. Creative processes are part in many academic disciplines. Information seeking triggers creativity in many ways, especially in learning processes. Virtual makerspaces can supplement educational virtual environments. This paper assesses the use of a third space lens for the planning of virtual makerspaces supporting academic creativity (based on findings from information behaviour studies), as seen from both information literacy and human computer interaction perspectives. Method. The paper is based on (i) findings from an empirical study in a creative academic context, (ii) scoping literature reviews of: creativity and information behaviour, search as learning, third space, and makerspaces. Analysis. Findings on information needs, information behaviour and creativity and search as learning are mapped against what an academic virtual makerspace can offer when applying a third space lens. Cognitive, affective, and physical perspectives are acknowledged. Findings. Both virtual academic makerspaces and third space holds value for information supportive environments for creativity and must build on findings on information behaviour. Conclusion. Further research should consider practical implementation.
