What's the IT Term for Providing Instructions to Find Information?

In summary, the conversation discusses a word or phrase that means "instructions on how to find information" instead of simply providing the information itself. The example given is someone asking for a cookie and being directed to a cookbook and specific recipe instead.

Problem:
I have heard of a word(s) with the meaning: "instructions on how to find information", so that instead of telling someone a piece of information straight away, one tells how to find the information. For example: Someone asks, I want to eat a great cookie. The answerer gives not the cookie itself but rather tells, Buy cookbook "Aunt Marys best cookies", then look up cookies with lemon, them pick one of them.

The problem is I cannot remember what this word or phrase was.

Anyone cares to inform readers about the standard "words we modern people use"?
