Sorry. The problem with trying to write something when I've been up
for 24+ hours:

I'd like to collect all of those shots, with the processing data that
I've already done, and have a special grouping of them all in one
place. I'd rather do this without duplicating the raw files that are
already there, though I don't mind if the files of processing
instructions (for printing) are different than the current iteration
of those files.

The question is, how do I copy the photos from different libraries, or
catalogues, or whatever they're called into a single set? Preferably
doing so in such a way that I'm collecting the lightroom info about
each photo, rather than just duplicating the raw files.

When I import files, it maintains the directory structure of where
each of the photos is, and this may, or may not be a good thing.

The first step is learning to take great photos, 
the second step is learning to throw away ones that are merely good.
