Referencing a book is not good enough?

A friend of mine returned her essay, and got a peer evaluation. It said her work was good otherwise, but there were no links to proper reference. She had used a book as a reference, the author and title properly cited.

What? Using a real printed book was the worse option compared to using a website? What is happening to academic writing? I agree with my friend it is a  sad day, if using books as reference instead of links is seen as bad.
