Go to http://functions.wolfram.com/GammaBetaErf/ExpIntegralEi/ and click 
on the "Representations through more general functions" link. There you 
will find that a number of possible representations including 

 ExpIntegralEi[z] == z HypergeometricPFQ[{1, 1}, {2, 2}, z] + 
    (1/2) (Log[z] - Log[1/z]) + EulerGamma

>   LogarithmicIntegral Li(x)

At http://functions.wolfram.com/06.36.26.0001.01 you will find that

 LogIntegral[z] == Log[z] HypergeometricPFQ[{1, 1}, {2, 2}, Log[z]] +
   (1/2) (Log[Log[z]] - Log[1/Log[z]]) + EulerGamma

Similar answers for all these case. E.g., at 
http://functions.wolfram.com/01.10.26.0001.01 you will find that 

  Csc[z] == 1/(z HypergeometricPFQ[{}, {3/2}, -(z^2/4)])

I expect that I don't need to go into details here ...

Cheers,
Paul
