Thank you for your question.
In order to access SRDS you must log on to the portal through the Hofstra home page. Go to the Library homepage at www.Hofstra.edu/Library > Research Resources (light blue tab) > Research Databases. You will be prompted for your username and password. After entering your username/password, you will arrive at a screen where you can access databases either by subject area or alphabetically by name of database.
Select the alphabetical listing and click on to "s" and select "SRDS" from the screen. If you are bounced out of the database, it may be because several others are using the database. This particular database has a limited number of simultaneous users, so try again.
If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us at the Reference Desk.
