These books cover the history of the technique with lots of illustrations -- and few clues about how to make them.

I know of two artists who are making micromosaics in the US. Gina Hubler offers classes, mosaic tours of Murano, and mosaic tools: http://www.mosaictools.com/
She may be able to advise you and help you find an adhesive for your mosaics. Download her catalog for more information: http://www.mosaictools.com/supplies/catalog.pdf

Laura Hiserote creates amazing micromosaics: http://www.micromosaics.com/index.html

There are many web resources for studying micromosiacs, for example:

Cole Sonafrank's website has an extensive discussion of different types of "Mosaic Mortar Formula and Instructions" - primarily for larger work, but it is worth exploring his lists:
http://www.elvesofester.com/mosaics.html and a suppliers page
http://www.elvesofester.com/components.html
Take a look at his book list, too: http://www.elvesofester.com/MosaicBooks.html

These mosaic societies provide answers to your questions as well:

Society of American Mosaic Artists: http://www.americanmosaics.org/index.cfm
Includes: lists of workshops & classes, mosaic suppliers, mosaic links, etc.

British Association for Modern Mosaic: http://www.bamm.org.uk/

Mosaic Matters. “The online magazine for all things mosaic. Includes a glossary of mosaic terms, notice board for questions about mosaics, pages of hints and tips. http://www.mosaicmatters.co.uk/
