Start Lightroom 4, then choose "Open Catalog" from the File menu. Select your Lightroom 3 catalog, and let Lightroom 4 update it. All your collections should come along with the update.

This will create a copy of your catalog for updating, so the original can still be opened in Lightroom 3, if you so wish.
