Convergence and Divergence help


I have 2 integrals I want to proof are either diverging or converging:

The 2 are:
First: Integral of (1/(x*ln(x)))dx from 1 to infinity
Second: Integral of (1/(x*ln(x)^2))dx from 1 to infinity

Almost the same just that the second one is (ln(x))^2

I am almost sure that the first 1 diverges and the second one with ln(x)^2 converges, I just dont find which method to proove that.

If you sibstitute $\displaystyle \ln x = t$, you should be able to integrate them. After that, look at the limits carefully. What do they do when approaching infinity or 0 (with respect to new variable $\displaystyle t$)?
