I'm looking to purchase an OOD book for our development staff and I was wondering what book(s) everyone would recommend.

I recommend:

Agile Software Development - Principles Patterns and Practices by Robert Martin

Applying UML & Patterns - AN Introduction to Object Oriented and Analysis and Design and the Unified Process by Craig Larman

Object Design - Roles, Responsibilities, and Collaborations by Rebecca Wirfs-Brock and Alan McKean

Good books recommended by Ken!

The only one I'd add without knowing more about your goal of buying those books is "Refactoring" by Martin Fowler.

Head First Patterns is also an excellent choice, unless your people don't have a sense of humour

I can also highly recommend the new "Domain Driven Design - Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software" by Eric Evans. I got it yesterday and haven't been able to put it down. The book's focus is on the techniques and processes used to develop a rich domain model. It emphasizes maintaining a close tie between the domain model and its implementation in code.
