I've just taken over as Site Collection Admin for a site that regularly needs new document libraries created. A document library template was developed for creating these libraries. The business users have requested changes to the template.

How do I modify the template? I know how to create a new template.

You can't really. You need to create a new library off of the existing template, make the desired changes, then create a new template off of that. Then you can provision new libraries off the new template.
