The Blue Shield

I have long been intrigued by the Blue Shield, an IFLA/Multi-Institutional project to create the cultural equivalent to the Red Cross.   However, it doesn’t really seem that after 2006, much information is to be found.   

It’s last formal report was in 2004.  It’s last official statement The 2006 Hague Blue Shield Accord was released September 26, 2006.

What happened to this organization?

I have visions of myself entering war torn countries in military fatigues with archival materials strapped to my back and entering national museums/libraries yelling “PUT DOWN THE CULTURAL ARTIFACTS AND NO ONE GETS HURT!”  Oh, and I would look like Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider.  That too.
