pdf is just a file type. Its not a type of source. So it depends. A pdf of a book uses book citation. Of a newspaper article, newspaper citation. And so on.

As BladeRunner said, PDF is not a source type, but this should help citing it. http://www.easybib.com...

All the source types are listed. Just select the correct option, i.e. book, letter etc. and it will create the citation for you, and you can manually add whatever info it didn't get.

Ah. I see. This is for College and you never can be too careful.
