Let me try this again; don't know why texhax didn't like my message.

Donn,

I'm not sure what the class and style packages you have gotten from FIT
look like, but we have a really good package here at GaTech you can

If you look at the comments in the gatech-thesis-losa.sty file, it
explains pretty well.  If you use that package (and I'm not sure how
compatible it will be with the FIT thesis class), just make sure to
\usepackage{gatech-thesis-losa} and define the file with your losa
definitions as \losafiles{your-losa-file}, where you have a file
your-losa-file.bib with entries like

@gd{gammaprime,
word={$\gamma~^{\prime}$},
sort={gammaprime},
definition={Strengthening precipitate phase}
}

Not sure exactly how you specify where the LOSA shows up -- that's
embedded in the gatech-thesis.cls file somewhere, but I believe it's
called in essentially the same way as a glossary.
