Kansas City Library doesn’t really look like an library at all… modern architecture parlante?

Meet Monty: Yale University Law School is an intense place, and its library is no joke: It has soaring vaulted ceilings, stained-glass windows and giant chandeliers that hang from chains. To help students unwind, the library is offering a rather unusual checkout option: Monty, a Jack Russell-border terrier mix.
I’ve been looking at various online collections from libraries (including the Library of Congress, where this lovely 1907 panoramic of flooded Pittsburgh came from) and was wondering: Are there any online archival collections that you particularly like?
I’d like to post more archival pictures and articles related to topics coming up on the show — but a) don’t know what’s out there and b) am finding some of these online collections difficult to navigate. Is there one search engine or database that catalogs these collections?
