The Project to produce the Western Perspectives on a Nation series of web sites was funded by the National Council for the Centenary of Federation through the Western Australian State Library Custodians and the Save Our Century Fund. The sites are devised to celebrate one hundred years of Australian federation and are published by The Library and Information Service of Western Australia. All the materials included are found in the collections of the J S Battye Library of West Australian History.
The aim of the Project was to select images, from the Battye collections, that told the story of Australia's economic and social development through the twentieth century - as viewed from Western Australia. The seven linked sites funded by the original grant cover the themes of architecture and building, the land, the sea, mining, transport, migration and settlement, and clothing. An eighth site showing images of women through the century has been added through the generosity of a private donor to the Save Our Century Fund.
