The Keywords box from photo metadata IPTC core is not shown in Lightroom but is in Bridge. Can you enable Lightroom to show or even import this data into its keyword list?  I have been using Bridge for many years  If I switch to Lightroom must I enter all the keywords and collections manually from Bridge to Lightroom?

When image files are imported into LR the metadata should be automatically read and loaded into the LR catalog file. If edits are made using Bridge AFTER the files have been imported you'll need to update them using LR menu Metadata> Read Metadata from file. You can also use Synchronize Folder with 'Scan for metadata updates checked.
