They supplied me with a latex template document which is nice for the most part. I just don't succeed in adding a list of abbreviations to it. This is what I have including where I would like to have such a list:

%List of Figures
\listoffigures
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{List of Figures}
\newpage
%List of Tables
\listoftables
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{List of Tables}
\newpage
%List of Abbreviations

% ?

%References
\renewcommand\refname{References}
\bibliography{literature} 
\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{References}

For each of the other elements (figures, tables, references) there is a new page and an entry in the table of contents. Furthermore, the name of each element is printed on top of the page like this: enter image description here

How do I add such a page for my abbreviations?

Thanks in advance!


Edit: I tried the package acronym. After importing it, I added

%List of Tables
\listoftables
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{List of Tables}
\newpage

%List of Abbreviations
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{List of Abbreviations}
\section*{Acronym List}
\begin{acronym}
    \acro{CDMA}{Code Division Multiple Access}
    \acro{GSM}{Global System for Mobile communication} % [...]
\end{acronym}
\newpage

%Literaturverzeichnis
\renewcommand\refname{References}
\bibliography{literature} 
\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{References}

This works mostly fine: I get a new page for my acronyms and even an entry in the Contents. However, it still says "List of Tables" from the section before - how do I change that? enter image description here


Edit 2: For future visitors: By now I solved it by adding \markright{List of Abbreviations} like this:

%List of Abbreviations
\section*{List of Abbreviations}
\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{List of Abbreviations}
\markright{List of Abbreviations}
\begin{acronym}
    \acro{CDMA}{Code Division Multiple Access}
    \acro{GSM}{Global System for Mobile communication} % [...]
\end{acronym}
