Book recommendations

I am relatively new to the DBA role. I am 8i OCP, and have a solid technical
background. Where I'm weak is on design. I'm aware that there is more to
designing a database then physical layout. Can anyone recommend a good book
or website for me to educate myself on database design? I'd appreciate any
feedback. I know I could go to bookpool and blindly pick a book or two, but
I'd rather not make a blind choice.
Thanks.

Dale, you should be more specific. I expect what you want is a book
on Relational Design rather than articles/Book on laying out an Oracle
database.

Unfortunately the only design book I read and liked is no longer
available due to the publisher going out of business.

There was a thread on this topic on the Oracle-L list recently that
listed several such books that are currently available (approx $140).
You can find the Oracle-L archives at
www.freelist.org/archives/oracle-l. You can find the archives to this
newsgroup via google.

You're right Mark, I was a little vague in my request. What I'm looking for
is a good resoruce for learning Relational Database design. Where I am weak
is data modeling, and logical layout. I think I have a pretty good handle on
the physical Oracle layout. Thanks for the reply, I'll check out the
archives.
