Revealing advantages of disciplines and gaps between one university and others is essential. Although most researchers and institutions are involving evaluation by using various indicators for resulting in the diversified discipline rankings in colleges and universities and for improving education level and enhancing core competitiveness of scientific research. Based on the previous selection standards and evaluation indicators for disciplinary competitiveness and information resources and intelligence analysis being available at the library, the article uses Peking University in this study as a specific case to construct the evaluation system with indicators from six aspects, staff & teams, research output, programs & awards, international cooperation & exchanging, discipline ranking, and innovation ability. The indicators are synthesized to judge the comprehensive competitiveness of universities and their disciplines, and strive to form a reasonable systemic evaluation method and measuring mode so that it can be popularized and used.
