When disasters or crises hits communities, libraries are called upon to collect the stories and social media content that document the tragedy. Tabletop exercises are one means by which cultural institutions can assess their readiness to respond to such challenges. This tabletop exercise is designed to help cultural institutions assess their readiness and prepare for collecting in times of crisis.

This exercise debuted at The Collective's 2020 conference (which had a Dungeons and Dragons' Roll for Initiative theme), in Knoxville, TN as part of the session Rapid Response: A Digital Collecting Quest, on March 13, 2020.
