Evaluate: $\displaystyle \int(x^nln(x)dx)$ where $\displaystyle x\not=-1 $

I know that one must use integration by parts ($\displaystyle \int(udv)=uv-\int vdu$)

As it stands right now I have $\displaystyle u=x^n$ $\displaystyle \rightarrow du=nx^{n-1}dx$

Along with $\displaystyle dv=ln(x)dx$ $\displaystyle \rightarrow v=xln(x)-x+C$

I substitute the above values into the equation for integration by parts and I do not know how to continue from there. Any advice would be appreciated.
