basically, that is possible "built-in". ms access can be connected to several times at once, and will handle the concurrency.

note however that ms access is not "very good" at this, and you risk to get a corrupted db quite frequently, especially with the db being on a network share.
in this case, you should really "upgrade" to a full-blown database system (ms sql server, mysql, oracle, ...)
