The easiest way the I've implemented to control and log user network traffic would be to create a Proxy server, you can simply use Linux Squid, relatively easy to set up. With this you can establish permissions to each machine (via IP, or network segment) on what websites they can access (Access Control Lists) and it will log all activity by IP.

Basic tutorial to configure squid:

as mentioned you would ideally need something in the middle.  Squid or a firewall / content filter.  What kind of hardware do you have now, maybe some of that can be leveraged.

If you have Sophos End Point Protection - it will log all web activity and it can block certain sites per policy. Websense is an in-path solution.
