What kind of glue?  

 

Harry has 'consolidated' some excellent information on glue. I would 'adhere' to the principles suggested HERE.

If I had a penny for every word I have to look up.....  Wish JohnJ had said "Elmers."

I would suggest becoming familiar with the types of fossils found in your local area through books or the internet. Start with more common ones and go to uncommon and rare from there. Chances are if it doesn't look a piece or whole of anything you've learned about, it's not a fossil. It's normal to hold on to questionable pieces though, I do it myself. Just make sure you're narrowing it down so you aren't bringing home a WHOLE bucket of nothing but oddly shaped rocks!

 

A couple tips to keep in mind: If it's a piece of bone, it'll have tiny holes in it giving it a cellular or spongy appearance. If it's a tooth it'll usually have some enamel, so part of it will have a nice shine to it.
