Q. Hi! I do not know how to cite PDFs in APA?



How you cite a PDF all depends on what your PDF actually is.  Is it a journal article, government document, chapter in a book, etc.? Once you determine what what your PDF is, you can use the BU APA Guide to then cite your source accordingly.  Link here: http://www.ubishops.ca/wp-content/uploads/APAguide6thofficial.pdf

Or Purdue Owl: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/1/

If you are having difficulties identifying what your PDF is, come and see us at the Reference desk and we would be happy to help!  Reference Hours can be found here: http://ubishops.ca.libguides.com/hours_location

We hope this helps!
