Where is the logarithmic derivative at $s=0$ of the L-function of a Dirichlet character computed? Many people cite the Hurwitz formula but I was unable to find a suitable reference.

In this post there is a formula for the logarithmic derivative but no further reference (only the computation of the value $L(0, \chi)$ is discussed). I already know the formula. What I want is a reference in which it is proved. – carapace Jan 21 '14 at 13:43
See Lemma 3.1 in‎ with $k=2$. – Dietrich Burde Jan 21 '14 at 13:53
