Access 2007 GUI Request

Hello, I am making a new database and would like to see examples of Access 2007 GUIs that some of the experts here would recommend.   The type of forms I would be constructing would consist largely of multiple list/combo boxes with a text field to describe the selection from those boxes.  However, users will have to enter a great deal of data pertaining to academic literature so I would like to see the interfaces that experts have created so that I can attempt to avoid making forms that are too cumbersome to navigate.

Any suggestions would be helpful and greatly appreciate,
Bevo

Are there other programs out there that do a similar task? If so, reviewing those programs will often spark ideas to do things "newer and better".

Can you provide more details of the program's functions? For example, what is the purpose of the listboxes? What sort of choices would they hold? Why would the user select them, instead of writing freeform text in a Textbox?
