There are several Invenio installations that you can have a look at in order to see it in action:

1.3.1. Demo Sites

Atlantis Institute of Fictive Science

running Invenio 1.2.1, released 2015-05-21

Atlantis Institute of Fictive Science is an official demo site of Invenio. It demonstrates a basic setup of Invenio. You could (should) obtain this site if you install Invenio for the first time, by lauching inveniocfg --create-demo-site and inveniocfg --load-demo-records. This is useful to verify the functionality of your installation prior to customizing the system for production.

INSPIRE is the high-energy physics information system that combines the successful SPIRES database content, curated at DESY, Fermilab and SLAC for decades, with the Invenio digital library technology developed at CERN. INSPIRE is run by a collaboration of the four labs and interacts closely with high-energy physics publishers, arXiv.org, NASA-ADS, PDG, and other information resources.
