Abstract: The relationship between the properties of the Koszul homology modules of two ideals connected by linkage is studied. If the ideal $ I$ is either (i) a Cohen-Macaulay ideal of codimension 3, or (ii) a Gorenstein ideal of codimension 4, the one-dimensional Koszul module carries considerable information on the structural nature of the linkage class of $ I$ in case (i), or on the conormal module of $ I$ in case (ii). Emphasis is given to the verification of the properties by computation.
