I have a large number of books to input to LT. I bought 2 CueCats & thought I'd be able to have 2 volunteers help scan books at the same time. I signed into my LT account on 2 laptops & tried using both CueCats to scan books at the same time. One worked & the other didn't do anything. Is it not an option, or did I do something wrong? Thanks!

Shouldn't be a problem - one Cat per computer works fine. Does the one that didn't work work if you're _not_ using the other simultaneously? I suspect that either the Cat has a problem, or the person scanning wasn't doing it exactly right.

I've done multiple-person entry, with multiple Cats involved. It worked fine. There have also been flash-mob cataloging parties, with lots of people working simultaneously to catalog a library - I don't recall anyone mentioning Cats, but I suspect they have been involved.
