Sing your search query

The New Zealand Digital Library has a music digital library system called MELDEX that allows users to literally sing (or hum) their queries, generating a list of matching folksong tunes. If you click on the “Start a music query” icon, you can then choose to make a query using either “symbolic input” or “raw audio input”.
