You can also use keyword searches to find similar files across all your catalogs. Here is what I do to make my photos easy to find.

I set up a smart catalog for each year....

Just to check, for the word "catalog" should we read "collection"? (throughout) - it is just that some people DO use separate Catalog databases, but these cannot be searched across .

To clarify the terms for the OP, Collections and Smart Collections occur inside one given Catalog, as just one among many parallel ways to organise the pictures referenced by it. Other ways, include classifying and filtering the images by keyword , or by their shooting attributes , or by what disk drive and folder they incidentally happen to be stored in, or what rating you have given them, and so on (folders do not have any particularly unique status in this overall setup).
