Dear TeX Hackers,

As collaborations have grown, so have BibTex entries, and the entry generated by ADS for the paper "Multi-messenger Observations of a Binary Neutron Star Merger” is too long for the current character limit.   The entry can be found here:;!!C5qS4YX3!QCGTY3sgBldIjM_AZw5gS-1DmZ-Y1K2wsGD3wx-Jjcs5e4K8iYJrvhHZL5m4gNc$ 

using the Export Citation link at the left.  For the reference list of NSF proposals, all authors are supposed to be listed.  To do that, the full author list needs to be ingested by BibTex.  (For my immediate purposes, I have truncated the list with “and others” at a point that fits within the character limit.)

With best regards and in grateful appreciation,
David Williams
