What online archives have the best design and UI?

Have you ever seen an online archive with an unbelievable design for users? A large archival online collection that's easy to navigate, tells you exactly what you want to know, and loads easily? Can you tell me what it is?

I'm looking for some design inspiration. If you know of a library, collection, audio collection or archival website with a fantastic design and UI, could you please let me know what it is?

Most good collections use CONTENTdm which is pretty easy to use and user friendly.

I just happened across We Love Ad online advertising archive today, and, from my first brief look-around, was quite impressed.

I like the way the Movie Title Stills Collection is structured to present a lot of visual items in chronological categories.
