Using the glossaries package, how can I have a different description in the glossaries list to how it appears in the document?

The main reason for this is that in text I would like QUT to appear as "the Queensland University of Technology" but I would like this to appear in the acronym list with out the leading "the".

Is this possible?

If not, what is a good way to deal with acronyms where you need "the" in the long form, but not the short?

You can set up text to appear in the acronym list as an optional argument description of the \newacronym command

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{glossaries}
\makeglossaries
\newacronym[description=Queensland University of Technology]{QUT}{QUT}{the Queensland University of Technology}

\begin{document}
In \gls{QUT}, they did something.

\printglossary[type=\acronymtype]

\end{document}
