Using and Capitalization of Titles of Works in Your Prose

When using the title of a source in your work, take the information from an authoritative source; like the title page of a work. (On the title page of the book--not the cover or the book.)  Do not use any specialized fonts or lettering (even if they are used in the original work), and do use a colon between titles and subtitles. Make sure you capitalize all of the principle words in the title, excluding articles (a, the, and, of, an) unless an article is the first word to the title of the work. 

     Ex.: Kiss of the Spider Woman

Othermindedness: The Emergence of Network Culture
