Question Easy way to find which RPM to install?

We develop software for Linux and at times some of our third-party software requires the use of certain libraries. Is there a place that is maintained that lists each library contained within each RPM? Meaning, let's suppose I know I am missing I need to install *something* to get that library. Is there a place that lists which RPM package includes that library? I don't mean the utility that lists what RPMs are currently installed. I need something that helps people determine *which* RPM to install.
