This comes up periodically on different lists.  As John Hostage indicated, there used to be an LCRI telling you how to capitalize in exactly this situation.  That LCRI was cancelled and not replaced by anything, so now different catalogers take attitudes ranging from "It's wrong to do that now" to "You can and should use judgment to continue this practice."  That results in variation but we can probably live with it.

My thanks to all who’ve corrected me on this. Somehow I had a blind spot about it. I totally agree with the respondents on the capitalization of the second word after words like “Collection.”
