Perhaps try with the database name: mysql -u <username> -p <db_name> ?

Or is this something to do with the test data imported into EPrints 3? (This is why I wanted to have a look at the data on a database level.)

sub prints_for_division {
my ($session, $division) = shift; *Should be*sub prints_for_division {

my ($session, $division) = @_;

Otherwise only $session will get $_[0] and $division will remain 
"undef". "shift" only returns the first element of an array. Seb.
