Professor Kim Nayyer named Law Librarian of the Year

September 22, 2014 - In May, our law librarian and LRW professor, Kim Nayyer, received an award for (Canadian) Law Librarian of the Year – or, in the words of the award, “For librarians demonstrating a progressive and informed approach to the changing world of legal information.” The award is sponsored by Justis Publishing.

The nomination cited a) Kim’s imaginative responses to resource constraints (accelerating “the print-to-digital transition…in a way that permitted a retention or expansion of quality material within the scope of a reduced budget”); b) her work on the teaching of legal research and writing, including sharing her ideas with a broad network of people interested in the field; c) her engagement with social media; and d) her work as Copyright Committee Co-Chair for the Canadian Association of Law Libraries. Fabulous work, Kim!
