This includes replacement or upgrade of the three major business systems (fi nancial, human resource information and system management), establishment of the physical infrastructure (servers, storage and backup devices, and the rooms in which they sit) and acquisition of the bandwidth necessary to support the systems across a distributed campus environment. In 2006, a new library-management system was brought online, the culmination of a 12-month project. Complementing this, the construction of a new computer based learning precinct in the Library at Palmerston Campus commenced, with the aim of having it ready for the beginning of the 2007 academic year. Also in the systems area, the fi rst stage of a custom-built Cognos Automated Budgeting Tool was rolled out. The tool, built with support from the Commonwealth Workplace Productivity Program, will form the core of data warehouse and executive reporting work in 2007. The University also continued its rollout of an institution-wide help desk and contact-management software system, based around HP Open View Service Desk. The system allows each area to record customer contacts and responses, and has proven benefi cial in tracking and referencing customer enquiries. The rollout will continue throughout service areas of the University during 2007, improving tracking and customer service and informing institution-wide service improvement initiatives. Business enterprise outcomes Included within the Corporate Services umbrella are a number of business enterprise units that provide support to University operations while operating on a self-funding basis. These include the Bookshop, North Flinders International House, the Child Care Centre, UniPrint NT, Northern Editions and Territory Radio. Collectively these units provide a positive contribution to the revenue of the University. Bookshop The Bookshop had another successful year in 2006. Textbook sales increased in line with increased student numbers. The online internet sales service that commenced in Semester 1 of 2006 streamlined customer order processing and resulted in quicker delivery times for remote and regional students throughout the Territory. Community engagement continued with the Bookshop having another successful collaboration as on site bookseller for Wordstorm, the Darwin Writers Festival in May and the October sale, the latter achieving an increase in customer numbers. Territory Radio On air, the station continued to reposition itself as a professional and listenable community broadcaster appealing to a wide range of listeners. For music, the station has a defi ned middle-of-the-road policy. The new format for Territory Talk with Daryl Manzie offers interview and editorial opportunities. In-studio interviews in 2006 included Kim Beasley, Julia Guilard, Federal Indigenous Affairs Minister Mal Brough, and Federal Education Minister Julie Bishop, to name a few. Regular weekly interviews and programs include the Vice Chancellor, other senior University staff, visiting researchers, University guests and celebrities from the popular arts. Parliamentary broadcasts of question time continued in 2006, along with outside broadcasts for community, University and sponsor events. The events included the NT Careers Expo, Adult Leaners Week, Royal Darwin Show, NT Sports Awards and the Brolga Tourism Awards. Anecdotal evidence of greater listenership was mirrored by an expansion in sponsorship, the latter exceeding budget expectations. The station actively promotes the University brand through a strong association and providing key University interest spots. Coverage now includes Alice Springs 98.7. Territory Radio also supplies programs and community support to Adelaide River 99.7, Batchelor 98.5, Gove 106.9, Jabiru 104.1 and Lake Bennett 96.9 Northern Editions printmaking studio and gallery Northern Editions printmaking studio printed 76 editions in 2006, including new work by Jilamara artists and a suite by WA artist Shane Pickett. Print workshops were conducted on Melville Island and on campus with artists from Jilamara art centre and in Balgo with Warlayirti artists at the edge of the Great Sandy Desert, WA. On campus,
