The function of the Registry of Ministry Resources (RMR) is to provide standardized codes for classifying resources used in ministry in various ways.
The registry contains five code 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.
In addition, there is a change history table for each code set that has been changed since its initial release. There are no foreign key relationships among these code sets or between these code sets and those of other registries. Thus, there is no need for an entity-relationship diagram for this registry.
