Shared like saved on network drive? You can use this catalog at the same time only from 1 person with RW permissions.

In theory yes, but not in practise especially in a multi-platform environment. The safest method is to have each user install the catalog on their computer pointing to shared assets. Windows and Mac catalogs point to different paths in the same catalog so I've had to make a Mac one then open in it on Windows and reset the path to the top folder.

Expression Media had (better) shared catalogs on the roadmap, naturally being a Microsoft product at the time, but it never saw the light of day. Nowadays I'd recommend a web browser interface for ease of use cross platform compatibility. Something like Extensis Portfolio.
