I don't think you can do it on an individual image basis but you can add all images in an import to multiple collections if you use smart collections.

Create the smart collections and include a criteria based on the inclusion of certain keywords (EG monkey-collection, car-collection, butterfly-collection).
During import select to add those keywords and the images will automatically be added to the smart collections.

Can you explain how that would be helpful in your workflow Craig? What are you using the collections for?
