Lots of features available; among others:

A great example coming from Germany is WikiMedia Germany, for collecting scientific literature on Wiki. You can take at look around in most sites listed on wikindx thanks to the "read-only access", getting an idea of what to do with this viable and powerful software.
In the Test-Drive section you find examples of information resources cataloged, with lists of File, Bookmarks, Resources and Metadata linked to them.
