huge urls and marking essays

It's that time of year again. I've just come across my first essay in which absolutely all the refs are to websites, but include some good solid academic sites as well as JSTOR, and books from Google Books. The referencing is scrupulous in terms of providing citations for most quotes, but weak in that the author, title etc is usually omitted. The JSTOR URLs take up 5 lines and even if I could be bothered to type them in, probably wouldn't work anyway. I suppose I have to give the student credit for finding decent sources online, but it'd be nice to have them usefully referenced.
