The mission summary, from archive.org, is:

The Space Shuttle Endeavor, scheduled to launch March 2, 1995 from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, will conduct NASA’s longest Shuttle flight prior to date. The mission, designated STS-67, has a number of experiments and payloads, which the crew, commanded by Stephen S. Oswald, will have to oversee. This NASA press kit for the mission contains a general background (general press release, media services information, quick-look facts page, shuttle abort modes, summary timeline, payload and vehicle weights, orbital summary, and crew responsibilities); cargo bay payloads and activities (Astro 2, Get Away Special Experiments); in-cabin payloads (Commercial Minimum Descent Altitude Instrumentation Technology Associates Experiments, protein crystal growth experiments, Middeck Active Control Experiment, and Shuttle Amateur Radio Experiment); and the STS-67 crew biographies. The payloads and experiments are described and summarized to give an overview of the goals, objectives, apparatuses, procedures, sponsoring parties, and the assigned crew members to carry out the tasks.

One does wonder what “Get Away Special Experiments” were. Apparently that program had a “funeral” in 2005, and was dedicated to leasing canisters to manufacturing companies and to students so they could conduct experiments in weightlessness.
