In the spread of e-knowledge, information and communication technologies (ICTs) play a key role. The e-knowledge dissemination and access facilities are essential in Knowledge Resource Centers (KRCs) for conceptual analysis view on e-learning and decision-making policy on LIS education curriculum development. The ICTs serve as a tool for e-learning in the domain of library and information science (LIS) education to prepare curriculum for manpower up-gradation towards socioeconomic development in the present digital knowledge network society. This study identifies the importance of web knowledge information resources and their access facilities in information knowledge resource centers. The web knowledge information resource access facilities are essential to generate innovative ideas in library, documentation products and services and to build curriculum development in LIS education for socioeconomic development. It highlights the issues such as lack of awareness on IT application sources towards information product and services, lack of manpower for ICTs based information handling services in the knowledge resource centers etc. and other similar factors that come in the way of proper knowledge management for information resource access facilities that serve as an indicator of socioeconomic development.
