Mac Elrod

This is fjm_elrodor everyone who wants to wish Mac a (belated!) happy birthday and to thank him for sharing his incomparable knowledge of cataloging. I made this card from a word cloud of the subject lines of Mac’s posts to Autocat from the period of 2015-2016, and from his very first year, 1996-1997 using Tagul. I also based the shape from a picture of him from an online conference when I was lucky enough to be included as a virtual speaker. I thought he looked especially snazzy. Please share your best wishes below.

Happy birthday to a real giant (in the field, not, I'm assuming, in physical stature)!

Very belated Happy Birthday wishes to you, Mac. You have unknowingly been my mentor from the time I bravely branched out to cataloguing. Your posts and cheat sheets have not only helped me through the puzzling RDA, but also created a better cataloguer. I will sorely miss your posts on Autocat, but you will remain forever in my mind. Trusting you had a good day, and hoping for more good days for you.

Happy birthday, Mac. We've never met, but your incredible longevity in this field, to which I am a relative newcomer but in which I hope to stay for many years, is an inspiration. Thanks for everything you've done for the cataloguing community.

Happy Belated Birthday, Mac. I really enjoy your thoughtful responses on AUTOCAT-L. They make me think. I've used some of your cataloging cheat sheets. Thanks from a person who (mostly) lurks.
