1) Create an array of type LibraryInfo
2) Create a Collection and add your LibraryInfo items to it
3) (my favorite) create custom classes, one class as the container collection and another class defining each instance

let me explain what i'm doing
I have a lot of SQL Database that are document libraries.
I'm trying to create a utility that can connect to any libray and perform a function or series of functions.
I've tried to create a collection
bit it would not take the user type... unless I did something wrong
