How do I edit the details of a resource in Commons?
Authors can edit the license, version notes, title, description, tags, image, and sharing settings for their shared resources from Commons. To modify an existing shared resource, learn how to update a resource previously shared to Commons. Admins can also edit and remove shared account resources that are not private to the author.
