The difference between these two documents is actually quite minor. They both accomplish the same thing, but in slightly different ways. The biggest difference actually is the location they are commonly used, with resumes being common in the US and CVs being common elsewhere. Additionally, the CV is longer and less strict about what you can include. There are more opportunities to describe personal information and career goals on the CV.
The resume should usually only have four sections: the summary and skills, experience, and education sections. A CV should have all these section, but you can also mention awards, publications, grants, affiliations, etc.
