About the Author

John Vincent is the Networker for 'The Network - tackling social exclusion in libraries, museums, archives and galleries'. He has worked in the public sector since the 1960s, primarily for Hertfordshire, Lambeth and Enfield library services. In 1997, he was invited to become part of the team that produced the UK’s first review of public libraries and social exclusion (from which The Network originated). John now runs courses and lectures, writes, produces regular newsletters and ebulletins, and lobbies for greater awareness of the role that libraries, archives, museums, and the cultural & heritage sector play in contributing to social justice. He is particularly interested in supporting the work that libraries do with LGBT people, young people in care, older people, and with ’new arrivals’ to the UK.
