Transfer Ownership of a Media Library

If you transfer ownership of a Media Library to another user, you will no longer have owner privileges for that library. you will remain an authorized user and administrator of the Media Library, but the new owner will be able to revoke those privileges if desired.

In order to transfer ownership of a library, navigate to the Media Library settings page (Click the name of the library in the upper-left and select "Settings" from the dropdown menu).
