How could I evaluate this IMPROPER integra?

    Int from 1 to infinity of ln(X)/x^(3)

    --> Any ideas on how to get started(mainly the technique)? thank you.

    You would first find an indefinite integral using integration by parts.

    Let u = ln x and dv/dx = x^-3 and use integration by parts.
    And see what happens as the upper bound of the integral tends to infinity.
