Is it possible to store a single asset in multiple catalogs in Blender's asset browser?

I have a dirt material, and I want to store it in a catalog named dirt, and another catalog named, ground.

Once I've added the dirt material as an asset, I drag the dirt material into the dirt catalog I've made, then I click back on the all, to show all assets, and then drag the dirt material into the ground catalog. But when I click back on the dirt catalog, its no longer there, because I moved it to the ground catalog. Is it possible to assign the dirt material to multiple catalogs?

Thanks!

No. They have a "folder" structure, as opposed to "collections". From the Blender Wiki:

An asset can be assigned a catalog. Similar to files on disk, where a file can only exist in a single directory at a time (ignoring hard-links), an asset can only be associated with a single catalog at a time.
