NOTE:

(1) ALA only capitalizes the first word of the title and the first word of the subtitle--unless there is a proper noun, like Oxford is in the example, in the title.

(2) MLA uses the abbreviation, U, for the word university, when it is part of the publisher's name as with a university press.
