          From within ADE you can't, however if you are feeling adventurous...  All of the metadata for the content is stored in a file called manifest.xml, if you are okay with editing the file by hand you can change the information there, however -

          Make sure you quit ADE first (ADE expects to 'own' this file, and will regularly overwrite it)

          Make sure you make a backup of the file - if you mess it up, you will lose the current content of you library and have to regenerate it.
