Multimedia equipment was allocated for various departments mainly Media Centre, Distance and Flexible Learning Support Centre, the Centre for Enhancement of Learning and Teaching, Library, the School of Law in Vanuatu, the Library, and centres in Lautoka and Labasa. A database was also installed at the Information and Technology Services.
