This study evaluates the core performance, scenario and efficiency levels of the private universities library sectors in Bangladesh and tries to calculate the efficiency, technical efficiency levels also. The study examines the core performance and activity of the private university library in Bangladesh where applying the "Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA)" method for measuring the university library accomplishment that's developed by Charnes, Cooper, and Rhodes, 1978. It is an input and output oriented data analysis and this study conducting by seven private universities library data in Bangladesh from 2015 to 2017. This study finds that most of the private universities libraries are inefficient for their fewer service times, poor Books, Human Resource and Technological equipment's system. Though, all universities are trying to develop their dynamic and technological efficient condition and services after 2016. But only two private university libraries are gained tough position during the study periods. This study assists the decision makers to pay more attention to the significant library activities that may help in increasing the efficiency positions and ranking of the university library as compared to another library. Besides, this study will improve the management of the private universities library in setting up plans and technological strategies.
