In 2009, the University of Wyoming completed a major expansion and renovation of William R. Coe Library, the main library on campus. Among the project's many improvements was the creation of a dedicated space to house and provide access to rare, valuable, and historically significant materials. The Libraries' Grace Raymond Hebard Collection, consisting predominately of published materials about Wyoming and considered the most comprehensive of its kind, had been housed with the University Archives in the American Heritage Center since the mid-1990s. This collection was returned to Coe Library in 2010, where it was united with other special materials to create a new department: the Emmett D. Chisum Special Collections. One of the collections reunited in the new department at this time was the Hebard Historic Map Collection.
