Considering the clarifications made already, there has been something similar made already

Though I imagine that would be incomplete.

Depending on the type of collapse, we could and would lose a lot of information, all cutting edge research (since that's mostly preserved digitally), though that would be less important, since we'd have to rebuild the machinery in order to use it.

As someone else mentioned, seed banks are a good start as well. As far as knowledge itself goes, there are two books I'd recommend, The Knowledge: How to rebuild civilization (linkhttps://www.amazon.com/Knowledge-Rebuild-Civilization-Aftermath-Cataclysm/dp/0143127047) which I have read and is interesting in an entertaining way, and even somewhat useful; and How to Invent Everything (link https://www.amazon.com/How-Invent-Everything-Survival-Stranded-ebook/dp/B07B2LNVBY/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1543607051&sr=1-1&keywords=how+to+invent+everything) which I haven't read yet, but is a similar idea. This one I have read, and it's kinda cool.

To get an idea for how difficult it will be to restart manufacturing at our current level, you may want to also check out The Toaster Project (link https://www.amazon.com/Toaster-Project-Attempt-Electric-Appliance-ebook/dp/B007N209P4/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1543607108&sr=1-1&keywords=toaster+project) where someone tries to build a cheap toaster from scratch, and how impossible it is.
