The advent of kilometer-scale interferometers, such as those in LIGO, makes detection of gravitational waves from astrophysical sources a realistic goal in the near-term. Data collected simultaneously from the LIGO and GEO interferometers has started to flow during dedicated engineering runs and is being anlyzed by working groups of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration. This paper presents a short review of the data analysis techniques that have been developed and are now being used in the effort to detect gravitational waves. In particular, enhancements of the basic methods to improve efficiency and to handle non-Gaussian noise are emphasized.
