    Books on database design


    I was wondering if there a few good books on database design out there, or even just some good sites that discuss database design.

    Oh... I dunno, I might have just a few :

    Books:

    Beginner/general:
    - "Database Design for Mere Mortals", Hernandez (no SQL, just basic concepts)
    - "An Introduction to Database Systems", C.J. Date (a classsic)

    Theory:
    - "The Relational Model for Database Management: Version 2", E.F. Codd (E.F. Codd was the originator of the relational database concept)
    - "What not How: Business Rules Approach to Application Development", C.J. Date
    - "Foundation for Future Database Systems: The Third Manifesto", C.J. Date

    Websites:
    - www.dbdebunk.com (C.J. Date is one of the writers here)
    - www.searchdatabase.com (general database search engine)
    - http://www.itworld.com/nl/db_mgr/05072001/ (Codd's 12 Rules)
    - http://techdocs.postgresql.org/ (OK, this is just centered around PostgreSQL, but it has some great links)
    The real n-tier system:

    FreeBSD -> PostgreSQL -> [any_language] -> Apache -> Mozilla/XUL
