After updating to version 10 yesterday, I opened LR and discovered all of my collections and smart collections had disappeared. They showed up again when I shut down LR and restarted it, but today they were again MIA and eventually reappeared after restarting again. I back up my catalog daily, but this is worrisome.

Next time  it happens, create a new collection, and see if the existing ones reappear (without a restart)

 

Some have reported such (bug?)

Make sure you keep the Collections panel expanded, not collapsed. Restarting LR with the panel collapsed can make your collections disappear.  See this bug report:
