Submission + - Recommended Reading for Dev/Analyst cum DBA?

wheel writes: I've been doing programmer/analyst work for almost ten years now, but I've never actually built a relational database from scratch — in a big enough company that's always someone else's bailiwick. I've used some that were well designed, some not so well designed... I can tell the difference, but not necessarily _build_ the difference.

Now, as a consultant I'm being asked to wear the DBA hat, and I'd like to do a good job with it. What titles can you suggest to get me up to speed to help me build rock-solid and usable databases?
