CourseLeaf Catalog blocks

What are the CourseLeaf Catalog blocks?

The CourseLeaf catalog blocks are a collection of four individual blocks that pull information from the UC Davis General Catalog into your site, allowing you to show relevant course, program, and departmental information from the original source without needing to maintain it.
