Use Integration by Parts

(integral)ln(x) dx

set 
  u = ln(x),    dv = dx 
then we find 
  du = (1/x) dx,    v = x

substitute

(integral) ln(x) dx = (integral) u dv

and use integration by parts

= uv - (integral) v du

substitute u=ln(x), v=x, and du=(1/x)dx

= ln(x) x - (integral) x (1/x) dx 
= ln(x) x - (integral) dx 
= ln(x) x - x + C 
= x ln(x) - x + C. 

Now Put Limits

[ln(1)-1+C]-[0-0+C]= -1

Note-Lim [xlnx] = 0.
        x->0
