Kim Nayyer Rejoins Slaw

Slaw is mighty pleased to announce that Kim Nayyer will be rejoining us as a regular blogger.

Kim is currently a law librarian at the University of Victoria, where she focuses on collection development, instruction, and digital community engagement. She is also a non-practicing member of the Bars of Alberta (1994) and Ontario (2004), and while a research lawyer at a small Edmonton firm in the mid-90s, she managed the library and helped build a knowledge management system. Kim was also a research lawyer in large firms in Calgary and Toronto and at the courts, in which settings she worked with others to design legal research instruction programs and reference resources.

One of the first to join Slaw — coming to us a year after our start-up — Kim blogged with us for a number of years before being called away by the press of business and by family life. It’s very good news that she’s now in a position to resume blogging with Slaw.

You can follow Kim on Twitter @kimnayyer.


  1. Me too. Glad to have Kim back!


  2. Thanks, Connie and Steve, and thanks for the kind words, Simon! I’m looking forward to contributing again and will work hard to live up to the quality of this excellent site.

    As Simon writes, you may indeed follow me @kimnayyer; should you do so, though, you will be subjected to chatter about things like #yyj, #canlit, and #cdnpoli amidst the legal information, libraries, and academia content – along with a few RTs that aren’t endorsements. ;)

    For law library, legal ed, and legal information talk, I tweet with the team here from @UVicLawLib.
