Data envelopment analysis is a non-parametric linear programming-based technique used for measuring the relative performance of organizational units where the presence of multiple inputs and outputs makes comparisons difficult. The aim of this paper is to apply Data envelopment analysis in order to measure the efficiency of University Libraries. The panel data of five University Libraries for years 2002 and 2003 has been estimated. We identified six inputs and three outputs. The input variables

As output variables we estimated: number of registered readers, number of customers served, number of borrowed items. We found that three libraries form the efficiency frontier and the other two are inefficient for 2002 and 2003. A benchmark model is recommended for inefficient units.
