Users with OpenAthens accounts from your organisation can still sign in by entering their username and password in the same login box as the SirsiDynix accounts. This may affect your choice of label.

Should you need to show more than one option, how they are displayed depends on what they are. If they are all SirsiDynix or LDAP, the user will see a drop down list above the credentials boxes. This will contain all SirsiDynix and LDAP connections that are set as live and visible.
