Jerome Keisler's "Elementary Calculus, Chapter 8: Exponential and Logarithmic Functions, Section 8.3: Derivatives of Exponential Functions and the Number e"  Read Section 8.5 (pages 454 through 459). This chapter reintroduces the natural logarithm (the logarithm with base e) and discusses its derivative and antiderivative. Recall that you can use these properties of the natural log to extrapolate the same properties for logarithms with arbitrary bases by using the change of base formula. 
University of Houston: Dr. Selwyn Hollis's "Video Calculus: The Natural Logarithmic Function" and "The Exponential Function"  Watch "Video 31: The Natural Logarithmic Function" through the 5th slide (marked 5 of 8). Then watch "Video 32: The Exponential Function." The first short video gives one definition of the natural logarithm and derives all the properties of the natural log from that definition. It shows examples of limits, curve sketching, differentiation, and integration using the natural log. We will return to this video later to watch the last three slides. The second video explains the number e, the exponential function and its derivative and antiderivative, curve sketching using the exponential function, and how to perform similar operations on power functions with other bases using the change of base formula.
