Abstract: One of the greatest strengths of Next Gen librarians can be found in their ability to bring new and innovative ideas to the information workplace. Next Gen librarians can successfully serve in capacities that include leadership roles in core library functions such as planning or assessment, often with an enthusiasm that is refreshingly welcome. This article chronicles the efforts of a Next Gen librarian who successfully helped implement an assessment plan for all library operations at a four-year public university. Aspects of the plan discussed include forming a committee, establishing goals, collecting data, and putting the plan into action.
