    For simplicity and clarity, put quotation marks around the official titles of books, chapters of books, movies, plays, poems, songs, television shows, episodes of television shows, magazine articles, speeches, research papers and projects.

    Underlining was used with typewriters to denote italics. If you're producing a computer document, you may wish to use italic fonts instead of underlines. However, excessive use of underlines or italics can make text more difficult to read.

    Use quotations for book titles (including textbooks), unless they're reference books such as almanacs and dictionaries. Use italics (or underlining) for titles of books that are collections of works or proceedings (including journals). Use quotations for book chapters or individual selections.

    Book, magazine, Movie, encyclopedia, and bigger work titles are capitalized except for smaller words such as of and or etc. and underlined

    Poems, articles and smaller work titles are italicized or have quotes surrounding them

    example The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
