The manual page?

    man -Tps 3PM DBI | lp -D printer  # print a postscript version...

Of course, I think that is missing something in your question because that is
so obvious that you wouldn't ask it.

So, what do you actually /want/ from the DBI reference?

 - a summary of DBI methods?
 - how to use SQL through DBI directly?
 - a guide to using an SQL abstraction module?
 - a guide to effective SQL for MySQL, PgSQL, Oracle, or something else?
 - a guide to the "best" ORM for Perl?
