It builds its own (single) private catalog (of your entire HD) behind the scenes to make its searches faster, and you can Save and review the results of a Spotlight search made at a given time, or (I believe) save a set of search settings and redo that search at a later time. But I'm not aware that you can access or edit or annotate or print from that catalog yourself (not readily) -- nor that you can build or use individual catalogs of user-selected items in Spotlight. At least, I haven't found anything about such capabilities in Pogue's "OS X for Dummies".
