Q:    I am a student at XXX University working on setting up osteoware for the collection housed here, I had a few questions regarding the program and I was told that you were the person to contact. Is there a way to access the same data file on multiple computers and/or multiple users? If so, how would I go about doing so?

A: Go to the Osteoware install instructions https://osteoware.si.edu/sites/default/files/content-pdfs/Osteoware%20Beta%20Installation-2011.pdf  and navigate to Section 6: working with Osteoware on the network.

Installing and configuring the database on a network means that up to 5 people can enter data at the same time, though not on the same data record.
