Hi Kari,
When we are teaching citations, we always teach the students that part of
the purpose of citations is to help the reader find the original source
that the writer used. So, following that logic, the writer should cite the
source where she found and used the information. If she used the adapted
information at a different source, then each place she visited should have
a citation using the information given at the source's site. If it is a PDF
posted online, then she should cite it as a PDF file with the given URL.
The citation should lead the reader to where the writer found the
Hope that helps.
