About: Roll Tide Research is a series of interactive tutorials and other multimedia resources focusing on information literacy concepts, critical thinking skills, and practical research strategies for using resources available at the Libraries and elsewhere. The contents are organized into modules based on their general order in the research process, but the tutorials were designed to stand alone and can be taken separately and in any order. Some tutorials include optional quizzes at the end that allow users to email results to themselves.
Roll Tide Research was developed by the University of Alabama Libraries and launched in fall 2017. Content is regularly updated and additional content is being developed.
Feedback: We welcome your feedback. Please send comments, suggestions, questions, or report any problems to us here.
Note to faculty: Modules that include optional quiz components allow users to email quiz results to themselves. Students can then forward these results to you for assessment purposes, if so assigned. These modules can be assigned in any order that fits your instructional needs.
Embedding modules into Blackboard Learn: Beginning in fall 2018, versions of modules 1.1, 1.2, 2.1, 2.2, and 4.1 will be available for upload in Blackboard Learn courses as gradebook items. If you would like to add these to your course or would like more information, please contact your liaison librarian or Jon Ezell, Ph. D., Instructional Design Librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
