Is there a good access logging software for servers?

Hello,

I work at a school and we recently had a security audit centered around our student information system.  The server that has this software on it is Server 2003 and people use terminal services to connect to it from 4 different buildings in our district.

I know there is logging built into the OS, but was wondering if anyone used a separate software package just for the purpose of logging and recording when the server/data was accessed?   I think the state auditors might want something easier to read and understand than just the standard windows logging.

Thanks,

M.
