The function of the Registry of Ministry Resources (RMR) was to provide standardized codes for classifying resources used in ministry in various ways, however usage never coalesced around a unified list, so the registry was retired in 2023.
In its final form, the Registry consisted of the following tables:
- RMR_ScriptureScope: Code for Scripture-Related Scope
A code in this code set represents a book of the Bible or a major block of books (a testament) of which the resource is an instance (or to which its subject is related).
- RMR_ScriptureType: Code for Scripture-Related Type
A code in this code set represents the genre or comprehensiveness of a resource that is (or is related to) some or the entire Bible.
- RMR_Content: Code for Nature of Content
A code in this code set represents the genre or topic of a resource other than a Scripture-related resource.
- RMR_Mode: Code for Mode of Expression
A code in this code set represents the mode in which the content of the resource is expressed, perceived, or interacted with.
- RMR_Format: Code for Format of Distribution
A code in this code set represents the means of delivery to the audience or user.
