A new integration technique, which is suitable for integrands with multiple weak singularities, is introduced. Local truncation errors are given. This scheme, when applied to the Beta function, is shown to emerge naturally from discrete fractional integration. To illustrate the effectiveness of the integration method a numerical example is provided, with somewhat unexpected convergence results.
